fuel leak coming from head?

Ok so I know a fuel leak at the base of the head is unheard of but thats where im seeing it from. Its on the front side of the drivers side head... I have a regulated fuel return running 80 psi of fuel. I can turn the key on and watch it drip from the piece of head gasket that sticks out a bit. I thought it was the fitting that replaces the front banjo bolt but I can hold my finger underneath and no fuel... the line isnt leaking either. So my question is could a bad injector o ring do this or maybe a fuel rail... and really not hopping but a cracked head. Everything seems normal no oil in coolant no fuel in oil. Truck runs like it always had. I did arp studs last year. Any suggestions?

4 inch down pipe 5 inch stacks no cat, Powermax turbo, CFM large mouth intake elbow with larger pipe, S&B cold air intake, Edge juice with attitude CS with custom PHP tune. Atlas 80 ficm tune. Airdog2, TRP sump, 6.4 banjo bolts, Blue spring, Zoodad mod, Traction bars, counter sunk tool box molded around my stacks made by me, Coolant filter, ARP head studs, southbend duel friction clutch, complete EGR delete, DP mod, high idle mod, CCV relocation, 35 inch fierce attitude tires on 17" helo wheels
